Pre-sells is also known as 'en primeur'. It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, months before official release.
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn't enough to go around. Pre-release guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines - providing you are quick!
Now you need only pay the 'cellar door' price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £21.84 a case at today's prices) plus VAT on the total. Prices are for 12 bottles unless otherwise specified.
Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we'll contact you to advise which are still available.

Though best known of course as the home of port (and increasingly for its great reds) the Douro also produces some seriously good whites. The vines at Quinta de Porrais are planted high up so the climate is distinctly chilly and are on average 65 years old (many of them well over 100) resulting in great freshness, intensity and mineral complexity in the wine. The winemaker Francisco (Xito) Olazabal is a direct descendant of the doyenne of the Douro Dona Antonia Ferreira - a 19th century pioneer of the port trade who owned many of the Douro region's most important estates. Combining Rabigato, for its ripe fruit and zippy edge, with Códega do Larinho, for its wonderful aromatics, this white makes a lovely partner for sauced fish dishes.
